Just a thought about how to take care of the travelling hardware.
The biggest matter in my opinion is flying somewhere and taking your desktop with you. cause ther's all the X-ray scans and tilting while carrying it around the airport let alone you have to put your full tower in the belly, that pc
is gonna go :???:

So ok i shouldn't really just carry my desk around.
But in case i do... is it a certain death?

The X-rays and the tilting isn't much of a problem, pack your PC in a coushioned box and mark it as fragile,the thing you have to watch out for the most is the temprature inside the cargo hold, specify the temprature limits of your computer as well

Alternatively, you could just take the hard drives with you on the plane, and UPS the rest. It would cost more, but might be less hassle. And, if your airline doesn't insure luggage, it might also be safer, as $2000 worth of insurance at UPS only costs $6.

It is definitely more appropriate, at least I can tell what you are saying

You can protect your harddrive by placing it in your clothes after packing it in a properly sealed antistatic bag

Just make sure that it doesn't make suspicious "bulges" and that the anti-static bags are see-through (so you don't scare the crap out of the airport security).

I took my hardware with me in the plane, as hand luggage. Would that be an optoin? I put it all in anti-static bags and it even went through some scans and now everything is up and running :)

I always carry hardware as hand luggage, the conditions inside the cabin is far better than the cargo hold especially on international trips
